Had a rare moment for a quiet afternoon tea out on my balcony. Teapot is by Petr Novak--unglazed stoneware with kiln fire effects. Cup and tea boat are both Korean ware, and the tray is by an American potter, but I think they go together nicely with Petr's work. Tea was a lovely fragrant Vietnamese (!) roasted oolong called Twin Sisters, from Miro Tea--a very surprising find at our last local tea festival.

Harmonious tea setting for an unexpectedly lovely tea.

Petr's summer chawan shines on a hot day. I put a few leaves of Tie Guan Yin from Yunnan Sourcing into the bowl, covered them with boiling water (quickly heated just what I was going to use for each infusion in the electric kettle to minimize the impact on the kitchen), and after a few minutes, filled with room temperature water for a refreshing drink.
